Tell us about what you do in your role at Helix:
I work with the rest of the Brand Marketing team to explain and position our products in a compelling way for shoppers. I also work with several teams on the Helix DTC side to improve on-site messaging, print and in-box collateral, post-purchase communication, and more.
What is the best thing about your job?:
I really enjoy the variety of work I get to do in my role. A normal week can include anything from new product messaging to email marketing copy to on-site content improvements. I enjoy getting the chance to work on a wide range of projects that touch nearly every part of the customer journey.
What is your favorite perk about working at Helix?:
The happy hours and off-site events have always been some of my favorite perks. Helix does a really great job of scheduling events where we can spend time with coworkers and talk about things outside of our day-to-day projects.
